Link to SharePoint Library item not working as expected

Using the Sharepoint Trigger, "When a File is Created or Modified", I am trying to send an email containing a link to the file. Using the Outlook 365 action, "Send an Email" I select "link to Item" in the body of the mail. The working link to the file looks like this:

 

https://[].sharepoint.com/sites/Purchasing2/Sharepoint%20-%20Invoices/Broad%20Connect%20351.97%20%20201704%20%2082818.pdf

 

The link which is sent looks like this (yes, it is broken at the first %20):

https://[].sharepoint.com/sites/Purchasing2/Sharepoint - Invoices/Broad Connect 351.97 201704 82818.pdf

 

If I wrap 

 

Upon closer inspection, the working link has double spaces in some cases.....What is happening here? Links to List (as opposed to Library) items on our site work fine.

Hi @RickBeec,

 

Do you mean the actual link contains the "%20" within it?

From your description, it seems Microsoft Flow would automatically convert the "%20" to the space.

 

Tkae a try to click the advanced option of the Send an Email Action, under Is HTML, select Yes.

See if that would make any difference.

Hi,

 

Sharepoint does not add the %20 (space) but any browser converts spaces to it. I have tried the "send as HTML" as well as enclosing the Dynamic content in Double Quotes.

I have the same problem as well. Is there any plans to fix this? This pretty much makes Flows + SharePoint useless for me.

Possible to get some feedback from the support team on this issue?

Perhaps the team is unable to reproduce the problem. I can't beleive that more people are not using this awesome functionality?
